Kombu kelp
Protected: Organic Kombu Digitata Granules

Kelp L. digitata is a tough, leathery, dark brown seaweed that grows to two or three metres. The holdfast which anchors it to the rock is conical and has a number of spreading root-like protrusions called rhizoids. The stipe or stalk is flexible and oval in cross section. The blade is large and shaped like the palm of a hand with a number of more or less regular finger-like segments. This seaweed can be distinguished from the rather similar Laminaria hyperborea by being darker in colour and having a shorter stipe that does not easily snap when bent.  

 A great way to add seaweed in practically anything savoury you eat.

Please see the link from the BBC talking about the health benefits of seaweed. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-26043954 Why we should all eat seaweed. Please watch video on  Ben Fuchs, a nutritional pharmacist from Boulder CO  specializing in using nutritional supplements. https://youtu.be/dybKjaEx6wY Because of soil depletion from unsustainable farming practices, most whole foods are lacking in sufficient mineral levels necessary for human health. GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES ON SAFE IODINE IN TAKE The World Health Organisation considers 1100 mcg iodine per day to be the safe upper limit. The US Institute of Medicine has set 1100 mcg iodine per day as a safe upper limit. The UK Department of Health recommends that a daily intake of 1000 mcg iodine should not be exceeded. However, there is a lot of controversy over these fairly arbitrary figures, and an amount of iodine by a person’s weight has also been proposed. The allowance for a person who weighs 80 kg would be 2400 micrograms per day (mcg/day) – nearly 4 grams of Ascophyllum
